I never get tired of trying new root beers. I was excited to give the Jackson Hole Soda Company’s version a try. The bottle has an interesting picture of a bull with a man flying through the air as if he was just nailed by the bull. I think it gives off the idea that this root beer is not for the faint of heart and that is packs a real kick.
And it surely does pack a real kick. That kick comes from the strong anise flavor that this root beer contains. In my opinion it is way too much. There is also a citrus undertone that my wife noticed that she wasn’t a big fan of. The carbonation was borderline too much. As for foamy head, it didn’t really have much. Overall I was disappointed in this product, especially since I liked their sarsaparilla so much.
